Hull KR have made their first signing for 2015 with the addition of Darrell Goulding from Wigan Warriors.

The 26-year-old centre, who made his debut for the Warriors in 2005, will join Rovers on a three-year contract at the end of the season.

"I needed a new challenge at this stage of my career. The ambition at Hull KR really stood out," said Goulding.

"It's a pleasure to have a thorough professional join our club," added Robins head coach Craig Sandercock.

"He has been there and done that in terms of winning competitions and Challenge Cups. He is a big-game player and I'm really looking forward to working with him."

Goulding was part of the Wigan team that won the Challenge Cup and Grand Final double in 2013, and also played for England in the 2010 Four Nations Series.

"I've been fortunate to be part of a lot of success at Wigan and that's something I'd love to replicate at Rovers," continued Goulding.

"I'd love to be pushing for success over the next couple of years and there's no reason why we can't.

"Speaking to Craig Sandercock and [assistant coach] Chris Chester, it's definitely a club that's going places and the fact they wanted me so much was a really good feeling to have.

"I'd love to repay their faith in me by coming over and getting back to my best form again. It's a new opportunity and one that I think will probably reignite me."
